I thought he was poor tonight. Need to see much more from him
I don’t think he has a problem getting the mall quickly, which could be his problem.Imo it’s stopping his anticipation and ability to get to the mall quickly
I actually thought he showed some real glimpses of what he could do in the first half after a rusty opening 20 minutes.If you're referring to my comment, I'm a big fan of him and his potential for us. I'm not one to pounce on misplaced pass here and there but i'm really just trying to assess his game as i've only seen YT compilations. He's obviously very talented but so far his energy levels are very lacking and tbh for me that is the bare minimum.
You know he’s 22 right? He played a full season for Amiens at 19 and helped get them promoted to Ligue 1, and was then a standout player for Lyon for two seasons before joining us. I know there were some concerns about his fitness as a youth player but it’s hardly like he was some lower league journeyman who had one good season.We bought him based on a decent season with Lyon and his performance v City in CL. Before this he was scratching about in the lower leagues in France due to attitude and application concerns
I don't think it's quite like that. Yes, apparently he had problems with his weight a bit but he was just a chubby teenager at the time, puppyfat if you will.We bought him based on a decent season with Lyon and his performance v City in CL. Before this he was scratching about in the lower leagues in France due to attitude and application concerns
Lo Celso's absence has all been injury related.I honestly have no idea if he’s fit or not. I think whether fit or not he’s clearly not the easiest on the eye a bit like Yaya Toure. He just has a weird running style. Actually saw quite a detailed thing on twitter how he was an injury waiting to happen because of his running style. Hopefully that’s wrong but as said he can look awfully cumbersome. On the other hand you do see some great glimpses and he’s a really unique player. I’d find it weird if he wasn’t fit as he started our 1st game where as Lo Celso had been deemed not fit enough when he actually looks twice as fit as Ndombele. It scares me I have doubts but I can’t lie I do.
